Laser resurfacing utilizing the ActiveFX fraxal Co2 laser has been done for decades and is an amazing tool for resurfacing and retexturizing the skin. ActiveFX utilizes a high-energy beam of laser light to create a controlled burn on the skin. The outer layer peels off and new, healthy skin is regenerated. Effects of the treatment can be seen right away, however, the skin will continue to improve up to four months. You are socially unacceptable for a period of approximately one week following the procedure. Redness will continue for several weeks, plus makeup is used as camouflage.
